New features which should be implemented in Porteus; suggestions are welcome. All questions or problems with testing releases (alpha, beta, or rc) should go in their relevant thread here, rather than the Bug Reports section.

Thanks. I will do that.

1.0 In addition, in my working folder as I want to use only txz to finally produce the ending printing module with command, I have been able to use rpm2txz. There is an error message. Is it important (rpm2cpio failed) as the .txz (slackware) package was built anyway?

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/home/guest/Downloads# rpm2txz bjfilter-common-2.50-3.i386.rpm bjfilter-common-2.50-3.i386.rpm.txz

Slackware package maker, version 3.141593.

Searching for symbolic links:

No symbolic links were found, so we won't make an installation script.
You can make your own later in ./install/doinst.sh and rebuild the
package if you like.

This next step is optional - you can set the directories in your package
to some sane permissions. If any of the directories in your package have
special permissions, then DO NOT reset them here!

Would you like to reset all directory permissions to 755 (drwxr-xr-x) and
directory ownerships to root.root ([y]es, [n]o)? n

@brokenman:
gimp-solibs was not into gimp
Maybe there is a way to build gimp to get solibs applied, and that was handy for ahau to use it. I think you might do that with linux from scratch.

There is glc-solibs as a slackware package:
http://www.slackware.com/~alien/multilib/?C=S;O=A

openssl-solibs as slax module:
http://www.slax.org/modules.php?q=opens ... ory=search

and others unde pkgs.org all in slackware 13.2:
https://pkgs.org/search/solibs

@blaze:
Hello blaze. You are right these are good. Then I could use freestyler mergemodules script. :)

But I wanted to work with txz only this time to be able to use the faq strategy (ahau, brokenman or fanthom`s):
http://www.porteus.org/component/conten ... udies.html

Code: Select all

installpkg -root ~/temp/modwork/printing *.txz


It is under control now 8)

solibs seems to stand for so libraries, the enigma if it solved means that ahau used the so libraries of gimp. I will try that.
